Does ‘healthy lifestyle’ just mean eating your vegetables and going for a run? Or does it extend to what you put on your face? As I’ve become a bit skincare crazy during this Natural Instinct series, I thought I’d better ask someone who has an envious skincare and health routine, TV presenter for Network Ten’s The Project, Gorgi Coghlan. That’s why I was so interested to find out what she puts on her skin each day.
A: I turned 40 in August and as I’ve gotten older I do less and less with my skin. In the morning I put on a vitamin B serum to help repair my cells, followed by a zinc 30+ sunscreen. I don’t wear any make-up unless I’m on camera for The Project.
A: I cut out sugar from my diet around five months ago, along with coffee and dairy and I feel incredible. I very rarely drink alcohol and I take a daily zinc supplement after brekkie, which makes me feel alert and mentally healthy. I regularly have acupuncture sessions with my wonderful Chinese medicine specialist too.
A: In hindsight I should have been more diligent with my sunscreen. I recently had a biopsy on my nose and the cells were just starting to change into something nasty, so I’m super strict with zinc now.
A: II live on a farm and love to garden and ride my horses to re-connect with Mother Nature. It’s a beautiful contrast to the TV studio. When I’m working, I always take roses and other flowers from my garden into the make-up girls so that I’ve always got a visual connection to my home.
A: My daughter is only four and a half so no demands for beauty products yet! But I only use organic, natural bubble bath and cleansing lotion and I wash her hair with [a natural] shampoo and conditioner. The less chemicals I can expose her to the better.
A: Yes, we always choose natural products.
A: I don’t just buy any ‘brands’ now – and I only use natural products if anything at all and my skin has never been better. My lifestyle and diet affect the quality of my skin, not how much money I spend on big brands.
A: Less is more. Go natural sister and ALWAYS put on the zinc sunscreen.
